Movie madness!

I went to part one of the AMC Theaters Oscar marathon- Toy Story 3, 127 Hours, The Kids are All Right, True Grit, and The Fighter. Spoilers for some of these movies if you haven't seen them yet...

I'd already seen Toy Story 3 and Kids...but it was nice seeing them again. 127 Hours was excellent, but it's one of those movies I don't think I could sit through again. It was intense and a bit gruesome. I had to cover my eyes through the self-amputation scene! James Franco was just great in it. But again, I don't want to see it again any time soon- kind of like Schindler's List and United 93. It's too much for me!

True Grit was the best of part one. Normally I don't like remakes or Westerns, but the Coen brothers knocked out another great film. And the girl just blew me away. I don't get why she was nominated for Supporting Actress when she was really the lead.

The Fighter was the best boxing movie I've seen since, well, Raging Bull. True story, great acting. Mark Walhberg is another in a long line of actors who should have been nominated for Best Actor but was snubbed. Christian Bale will definitely deserve the Supporting Actor award if (when!) he wins next week! Now that I've seen the film, I'm a bit torn between Supporting Actress nominees Melissa Leo and Amy Adams.

I'm off to babysit Giada overnight. I'm also recovering from an ear infection. The antibiotics are wearing me out!
